Leeds forward Samu Saiz has accepted his six-game ban for spitting in their FA Cup defeat by Newport and apologised for his "inexcusable" actions. The 26-year-old was sent off by referee Mike Dean in injury time of Sunday's third-round tie at Rodney Parade. The Spaniard, who will be unavailable until 20 February, has scored nine times in 26 appearances this season. "I give my word to all those connected to Leeds United that I will learn from this and never repeat it," he said. At least he`s been honest enough but nice to see the FA finally giving a decent ban for a thoroughly dirty way to treat a fellow professional.
